Crest Chocolates of Brisbane wanted a high specification flooring finish to match the rest of its advanced facility.

Significant capital investment had been made to install advanced processing, packaging and wrapping equipment, enabling the firm to export its products to a wide network of local and international markets including Japan.

Among the criteria was that the new floor be in keeping with the standards of the firm’s HACCAP quality assurance accreditation. 

Flowcrete Australia recommended its seamless Flowcoat system with non-slip finish, which was installed in the main processing areas.

The solvent-free system is hard-wearing and offers enhanced chemical resistant properties, making it suitable for use in processing environments.

According to Alan Davis, Managing Director of Crest Chocolates, the floor is delivering positive results. “We find that the seamless finish is easier to maintain. We can complete wash downs more quickly due to reduced surface retention of the water.”

Flowcrete Australia’s licensed contractor Remedial Building Services was able to carry out the project within the client’s required timeframe, ensuring minimum disruption to production.
